I decided to take a Portrait Painting Class at the Anchorage Museum to learn skin tones: colors, values and figure painting techniques. We have a gifted teacher, Linda Infante Lyons. This is my first portrait from the class so far. It is a portrait of actress Scarlet Johanssen from the movie Girl With The Pearl Earring.
I hope to attempt a full figure painting in the future, and am hoping this will be the stepping stone to that goal.
